    Re: Tooth ache at depth ?

    From what it appears, getting the root taken out for that tooth will be the only permanant fix for this so think i'll give my dentist a ring. Unfortunately I have to be referred to a specialist for this and they arent Nhs so will cost,so long as it works that's all that matters.
    Thanks all for input.

    [quote=Serge;320718]Why? He lives in the UK and can get first class service for free. quote]

    I hope you are being sarcastic Serge.
    Ever been to an NHS dentist?
    You cannot provide a first class service when you have to see 40 patients a day and do a root canal which can take upwards of an hour (depending on the tooth) for £46.

    [quote=Diveimage;320737]Hi,
    Yes I had a similar problem after having a tooth filled, really painful on the decent for the first 20 meters then again when ascending.
    Went back the dentist concerned and she took out the new filling and removed the tooth’s root. Re filled it and everything has been fine ever since..

    Sadly this wasn’t the case for me as not everyone in the UK can get to a NHS dentist…
    Original filling £110 ; Root Canal £450 ;Total cost £560.
    Being able to go diving without tooth ache - priceless..

    Cheers

    Thanks for posting the DAN article Joe.

    As I previously indicated within this thread, I have been taking Sudafed prior to both recreational and technical oc & cc diving for many many years without incident, and have even cleared its use through my physician (ENT).

    However, this article certainly provides me with additional factual research based information to consider when deciding to continue/discontinue its use.

    I will print this article out and share it with my physician, but I wonder if there has been any more current research pertaining to this subject, because the bottom of the article dates it at November/December 1999.

    Re: Tooth ache at depth ?

    Dentist Here...............It can be very common to have a tooth where treatment has been provided over the years (i.e.:a filling, followed by another filling, followed by a crown) where along with the trauma of the cavity and the subsequent treatment provided the nerve and blood vessels inside the tooth just give up and die. Most will have an episode of pain or discomfort with the death of the internal tooth tissue. Once this occurs you have a space inside the tooth that can be altered by the atmospheric pressure of diving. Xrays and sensitivity tests provided by the dentist will usually detect the demise of the tooth tissue. Root canal treatment is the only option, if you choose to keep the tooth. Understand, though, that root canal treatment is not always successful and althought may relieve the pain and render the tooth usable again, it is weak and prone to fracturing. Also, the root canal treatment may appear successful only to flare up again many years in the future. Also, know that the root is not actually removed, it is the contents of the root, for the most part the tooth and root actually remains in your mouth, it is only cleaned out, filled and restore back to function. NEVER DIVE WITH AN UNFINISHED ROOT CANAL. And make sure the dentist does a complete fill to eliminate all space in the canal and chamber of the tooth.

    Keep Smilling...................

    Re: Tooth ache at depth ?

    I've a dive this Sunday, so will see what happens now as the tooth has had some anaesthetic stuff put in it and refilled in again. Dentist said this would help but not holding out hope. But any pain and I'll have to have the root done, as I don't want a gaping hole left where it's been pulled out.
